Oadby Owls 2 Leicester City Ladies 4 – 27th April 2014 (League)

The last game of the season promised to be an uphill struggle for Oadby against top of the league Leicester City Ladies. After a lively start by both teams and Oadby doing all they could to hold back the stronger team the Ladies were soon a goal ahead after 10 minutes. The last time the girls met it was a similar start with the Ladies proving too strong in attack for the Oadby defence. Despite the continued pressure from Leicester, Oadby continued to hold out in defence and managed a number of promising breakthroughs on the right wing with Laura nearly find her way through to the Ladies penalty area a number of times. The first half continued to be a fast paced game and despite a tight Oadby defence a second goal close to half time left Oadby two nil down. It was time for a team talk at half time and a change in approach from Oadby in the second half.

HT 0 – 2

The second half was a completely different game with Oadby having much more possession of the ball and shot after shot just missing the target. It wasn’t looking like it was going to be Oadby's afternoon as we hit the post and the keeper time after time. End to end play in the early part of the second half made for a tense game and it felt like Oadby were really making progress when Sinead nearly scored to pull one goal back. Oadby seemed to have grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck for a while with some good dominating football when disaster struck with an unstoppable cross from Leicester - Oadby were three nil down, very much against the run of play. 

More and more effort by Oadby created chance after chance but the Leicester keeper was more than a match for Oadby. Half way through the second half and Oadby were four nil down and it looked as if all was lost. Instead of heads going down though Oadby started to push back and now really looked like the better team. Effort after effort was finally rewarded with an excellent goal by Simi and it was 4-1 to Leicester; who now felt the need to change their goalkeeper!

Oadby continued to push forward with strength and determination and a second goal took the final score to be 4-2 to Leicester. 

This was a gutsy performance by the Oadby girls and one they should be proud of. The second half was an evenly matched game with two goals for each team. Against a much stronger team who finished top of the league by a considerable way this was a great result for Oadby. Congratulations to all in the team and the managers during the season. 

FT 2 – 4

Player of the Day: The team – a great effort from all the team!

Goals Scorers: Simi (2)

Oadby Owls 3 Cosby United 1 – 13th April 2014 (League)

The Owls were greeted by a sunny but deceptively chilly windy morning for their home tie against Cosby. The line-up started with Victoria in goal, Stella and Mya in Defence, Chiara and Simi in midfield, and Laura and Ellie up front, and Kiran and Ruth on the bench. 

Oadby got off to a flying start, with early pressure and Laura just failing to find a final touch to tap the ball into a welcoming goal! A much improved Cosby then seized the opportunity to show off their new skills and took the ball into the Owls’ half, winning a corner and throw in in the first five minutes. Mya and Stella, with some great help from Simi, kept Cosby at bay and a very energetic Laura worked incredibly hard along the right wing. But Cosby kept their cool for the next 5 minutes with another shot on goal and another attempt off target. Laura then continued the good work getting back into the Cosby half with Ellie just missing a tricky shot. 

Just after the mid-way point Kiran and Ruth came into the game, replacing Stella and Ellie. The fresh legs did the trick and the robust midfield passed the ball into Kiran who scored within a minute of coming onto the pitch. Three minutes later Chiara found herself in a scoring position but narrowly missed. 

At this point Cosby regained their earlier rhythm, and pushed back with a shot on goal well saved by Victoria. 

HT 1 – 0

After the break the team returned to the pitch unchanged, and as in the first half the Owls started well with Laura and Chiara pushing up feeding Simi who couldn’t quite coax the ball into the net. Cosby continued to defend well with a mass of red shirts standing firm in their own half, but they eventually conceded another corner to the Owls. Ellie raced onto the pitch to take the corner (in place of Mya), but the Owls just couldn’t convert it into another goal. 

Cosby seized the opportunity and raced back into the Owls’ half with a shot just shy of the target. Oadby then returned to Cosby’s half and with a quick 1-2 from Chiara, Simi found the goal at last. As play restarted again Oadby powered up the pitch but this time Kiran’s shot lacked a bit of punch and the Cosby goalie made a save. Not perturbed the Owls returned to the box and once again Simi found the net. 

Stella then returned to the pitch, this time upfront in lieu of Simi. As the Owls relaxed a bit, Cosby re-grouped and return to the Owl’s half, with one good save from Victoria, they found themselves with a second shot and managed to score just 3 minutes later. 

Once again the Owls reformed, with Ruth working hard at the back, and Mya and Simi returning to the pitch in place of Chiara and Laura, who had both worked incredibly hard. In the final few minutes, Stella toiled away up front but just couldn’t find the final touch. Mya then had one last shot on goal but narrowly missed.

All in all a great game against one of the most improved sides we’ve played this season. The birthday girl Chiara was player of the day, but Laura also made a massive contribution once again!

FT 3 – 1

Player of the Day: Chiara – a brilliant performance all over the pitch!

Goals Scorers: Simi (2), Kiran

Oadby Owls 3 Oadby & Wigston 1 – 6th April 2014 (League)

Good early attacks by Oadby Owls with shots from Kiran and Simi just off target, with well taken corners from Ellie. A good pass from Ellie put Simi in for a terrific goal in the fifth minute. Oadby & Wigston threatened more and V had to make some comfortable saves.  Laura on, Ellie off after 12 minutes.  After some good attacking football from Owls, Oadby & Wigston then got a bit more into the game and had some corners of their own and scored from one of these after 23 minutes. Half ends with a good run from Laura, a pass to Simi with a shot on goal. 

HT 1 – 1

Ellie on for Mya, Owls start 2nd half well with a good pass from Simi into the box to Ruth who narrowly missed the post, Simi then intercepted a pass and made a run and scored. 2-1 to the Owls!

Stella on for Mya. Ellie makes a good run from defence taking on three players. Oadby & Wigston's keeper kept very busy and keeping her team in the game. In the twelfth minute Laura makes a run past a couple of defenders to score a really good goal in top corner!

Good defending from Stella and Ellie kept the pressure on and Owls on front foot with plenty of shots on goal, with lots of good saves from their keeper kept the score at 3-1. 

FT 3 – 1

Player of the Day: Laura – great work on the right wing!

Goals Scorers: Simi (2), Laura

Oadby Owls 0 Loughborough Foxes 0 – 30th March 2014 (League)

Following a 10.30 kick-off the match turned out to be a close encounter early on with Loughborough keen to make amends for their 1-0 home defeat by the Owls earlier in the month. Loughborough were certainly playing the better football and seemed to settle a lot quicker with good passing and movement which created a number of good shooting opportunities. It was only a number of terrific saves from Victoria and some excellent defensive clearances that kept the Owls in the game during the early part of the first half. The battle continued with both teams determined to try and break the deadlock. 

A thrilling contest was unfolding before our eyes with the more fluid and stylish Loughborough Foxes being held back by a determined and tenacious Oadby team. End to end play continued right through until the final minutes of the first half with both goal keepers playing their part in driving forward the attack. Oadby pushed back yet another Loughborough attack and another great save from Victoria took us to a half time break all even at 0-0.

HT 0 – 0

A tactical change was made at half time and Laura passed the captains arm band to Stella. Off we went again with the second half bringing a number of chances for both teams. It was difficult to see how either team were going to find a way through with the two contrasting styles of play turning out to be equally effective.  Towards the middle of the second half Oadby were starting to slow down the pace a little bit showing signs of tiredness but it was great credit to the  midfield and defence who stuck at things and kept pushing back the Loughborough attacks. A tremendous strike from Loughborough nearly caught Oadby by surprise but luckily it cleared the bar and went out for a goal kick.

The contest continued right up until the final whistle with a well-deserved nil-nil draw at home. A real team effort today by Oadby, with every player giving a 100 percent against a stronger team which delivered a well-deserved draw and a clean sheet for defence. 

Well done Oadby!

FT 0 – 0

Player of the Day: V for some brilliant goal keeping

Goals Scorers: 

Oadby Owls 0 East Goscote 4 – 23rd March 2014 (League)

It was a very cold, windy and rainy Sunday morning at Coombe Park. Starting the match was Kiran (captain), Stella, Ellie, Victoria, Ruth, Simeran and Laura with Mya and Chiara subs. 

Both teams started strong. Ellie, Laura and Kiran worked hard in midfield to get the ball up the field to Simeran who had a great shot at goal which was saved. Both teams kept working hard to defend and to score that first goal. Mya and Chiara came on for Ellie and Laura. East Goscote kept pushing forward. Ruth and Stella were strong in defence but East Goscote had a strong shot at goal. V showed some great goalkeeping skills, she stretched and pushed the ball away from goal. 

HT 0 – 0

The second half was a tough battle with V making some fantastic saves. East Goscote earned a corner. Oadby worked hard to keep the ball out but a powerful shot from their striker was unstoppable, 1-0. Oadby fought back showing great passing through the midfield who passed to Simeran who had another great shot at goal but couldn’t find the back of the net. East Goscote pushed forward and found the goal again 2-0. Oadby passed the ball forward to Kiran. She ran forward and shot at goal, unfortunately it went just wide of goal. East Goscote followed with another great goal, 3-0. With their confidence high they scored again 4-0. Oadby never gave up; they kept trying to score with fantastic shots from Simeran and Kiran.

FT 0 – 4

Player of the Day: Chiara for sheer determination in midfield

Goals Scorers: 

Loughborough Foxes 0 Oadby Owls 1 – 9th March 2014 (League)

A dramatic last minute penalty gave the Owls victory over Loughborough. 

A bright sunny morning in Loughborough, where Oadby battled against a very good Loughborough side. 

Excellent goalkeeping from V, solid defending from Ruth and Mya, and a player of the match performance from Kiran kept it scoreless at half time. 

HT 0 – 0

The second half started with some excellent crosses from Sinead and Laura looking for Simi who came close to scoring on a few occasions. 

Contributions from Ellie and Stella kept the Owls in a very tense match until a cross came over from the left which found Sinead who was then fouled and a penalty awarded. A very nervous crowd watched in suspense as Simi placed the ball on the spot and coolly netted to the keepers right hand side. Jubilant scenes followed as the referee then blew for full time. 

A deserved victory for the Owls after a hard working display.  

FT 0 – 1

Player of the Day: Kiran - outstanding defending throughout the game!

Goals Scorers: Simi


Oadby Owls 0 Leicester City Ladies 2 – 2nd March 2014 (League Cup)

This was one of the most exciting and intense games we have seen this season, a real pleasure to watch our proud girls give it their all! Every one of them battled hard throughout the match showing their determination and skills!

Excellent defence and attack from all the girls with Simi and Sinead battling through the resolute Leicester midfield and defence, remaining strong and persevering throughout!

Chiara and Kiran, without any fear, threw themselves into action and showed off their amazing skills in defence.

Mya & Stella showed excellent tackling ability and were not intimidated in any way. Their confidence went into over drive and showed a real will to win!

Ruth, Ellie and Laura played amazingly as ever and gave it their all, tackling the Leicester players and fighting hard for a goal for the team! V also did some amazing saves to keep the Owls in the game.

Half time was an intense part of game and by now the girls were as determined as ever and knew they could still do it!

In the second half the Owls had more possession than their opponents and showed they were not about to give up! However, as the game went on Leicester showed why they are top of the league, with two well worked goals, which few teams would have been able to stop.

The final whistle blew and Leicester took the victory.

A very close game which both teams strived to win, with the Owls being a little unlucky this time round..!

Well done girls! 

FT 0 – 2

Player of the Day: The team – for brilliant work throughout the game

Goals Scorers: 

East Goscote 0 Oadby Owls 4 – 23rd February 2014 (League)

It was cool and windy morning in East Goscote and Oadby Owls were the visitors. 

The starting 7 for the Owls were Vicky in goal, Ruth and Mya in defence, Laura, Chiara and Ellie in midfield with Simi up front.

The home team kicked off and there was an interception from Chiara which lead to a pass to Simi who penetrated the home team’s defence with a forceful run into their box and also managed to get a shot off but unfortunately for Simi it went wide of the target. This was a sign of things to come.

The wind played a significant part in this game. The Owls were playing against the wind in the first half so Vicky was finding it difficult to get distance on her usually long kicks. This led to the Owls playing their passing game and after some pressure from East Goscote, which saw some great tackling from Ruth, there was a break from the middle of the park leading to Simi running with the ball into the opposition’s box and firing a powerful shot which gave the keeper no chance. 

One nil to the Owls!

East Goscote were coming into the game more and more and had a very strong centre forward who was much bigger than our two defenders, but it’s not all about size as the much smaller build of Mya was using her skill to mark her tightly and stop her having a chance on goal. East Goscote were getting quite a few corners which were all aimed at their strong centre forward who was trying use her strength advantage to push Mya out of the way but today she met her match. 

Ellie was coming into the game more and more and it lead to her creating some good chances by getting wide and crossing the ball into the box. The second goal came from a cross from the left with the ball falling to Chiara, who managed to wriggle away from the defenders and shoot, but her shot was deflected, however the ball came to Laura who managed to get a good strike on goal.

2 nil to the Owls!

This lead to the first round of substitutions. Off came Mya, Simi and Ellie and on came Stella, Kiran and Sinead. The Owls are now building a good squad of players which gives them great options.

Even though East Goscote were playing with the wind behind them, their shots were no match for the Owls very own Gordon Banks in goal, Vicky. She was in great form stopping shots with her hands and feet and even diving at the feet of the opposition. Vicky showed great bravery to stop East Goscote scoring and breaking the hearts of the home team. 

The first half ended with more Owls pressure from good work from Sinead and Kiran working in tandem.

HT 0 – 2

The second half stated well for the Owls as they were kicking with the wind. Vicky was now able to make use of her long goal kick to cause confusion for the home team’s defence.  The Owls passing game was causing the home team a lot of problems as it was leading to lots of shots on goal.

East Goscote were playing a counter attacking game, but Ruth and Stella were in no mood to let anyone by with some really good tackling to stop their attacks. When the defence was breached they came up against a goalkeeper in great form and there was no way past.

About ten minutes into the second half the next round of substitutions which saw Laura, Chiara and Ruth come off and Mya, Simi and Ellie came back on.

Owls were showing great energy in very difficult conditions, Kiran was tackling well in centre midfield and running from box to box.  Once again the attacks by East Goscote were thwarted by Stella and Mya together with the very impressive Vicky.

Ellie was working hard and managed to get off a clean strike on goal from long range, but unfortunately it hit the post and rebounded to safety.

The move of the game came from The Owls, the ball was won in centre midfield by Kiran who passed it out to the right wing where Sinead ran down the wing to the touchline and crossed the ball into the box from Simi to pass the ball into the net.

3 nil to the Owls.

The wind had picked up again and the Owls management saw an opportunity of a goal straight from the keepers kick. Vicky had been instructed to kick long and straight when the opportunity came along. The midfield and strikers were also aware of this tactic and were putting pressure on the oppositions defence from the kicks.

On the third attempt the tactic worked as Vicky managed to connect well with one of her kicks and the wind did the rest as the ball bounced over the home teams’ keeper and into the back of the net. This lead to a big celebration on the touch line by the management.

4 nil to the Owls.

The game ended 4 nil. This was great performance from every player from the Owls, an excellent team effort.

The player of the match was very difficult because it could easily gone to all nine, but after much thought it was given to Vicky for her heroics in keeping a clean sheet and her wonder goal.

The game was played in a great spirit and with plenty of smiles as it should be.

FT 0 – 4

Player of the Day: fantastic goal keeping and for her wonder goal!

Goals Scorers: Simi (2), Laura, V

Cosby United 1 Oadby Owls 7 – 16th February 2014 (League Cup)

On a fresh Sunday morning we finally get to play the cup game against Cosby after weeks of adverse weather conditions. With V in goal, Ruth and Mya in defence, new girl Laura on the right, Simi in the middle and Chiara on the left of midfield and Stella up front, and Kiran and Sinead on the subs bench. The game started with both teams adjusting to the conditions, heavy in places not ideal for running with the ball, more suited to a quick passing game and a switch of play, which hopefully the team will learn with time. The first chance fell to Laura whose shot was deflected for an Oadby corner. The ball switched from side to side in the early stages with no team taking control. Oadby gradually put Cosby under pressure with a number of corners in the first ten minutes of play. Simi’s corner from the right went to Chiara whose shot deflected to Kiran who coolly placed the ball in the net. 1-0 to Oadby, hooray, something to celebrate and take the supporters minds off the cold. 

As the game went on Oadby took control with a bit more pressure resulting in more corners with Stella, Simi and Laura keeping the Cosby keeper busy. After 15 mins, Oadby sub Laura for Kiran and Simi for Sinead. This turned out to be a masterful set of substitutions as Simi was wearing the wrong footwear and came on to the pitch like a girl possessed. Great work between Simi and Stella allowed Simi to go on one of her swerving runs and coolly shoot into the net, yippee 2-0 to Oadby, hopefully this means they can relax and play some more creative football. After about 20 mins Simi picks up a loose ball and shoots to score, fantastic, 3-0 to Oadby, hmmm still not playing to full potential but none the less  winning. Laura was making some great runs on the right hand side and seemed to settle into the team easily. At this point of the game, Oadby lost their concentration and after a few defensive errors Cosby managed to score, 3-1 to Oadby and that is how the first half ended.

HT 1 – 3 

In the second half Oadby sub Simi for Sinead (Sinead gets her boots back from Simi hoping she washed her feet last night) and Kiran for Mya. Oadby start the 2nd half brightly with Sinead passing to Kiran whose shot was saved by the Cosby keeper. Laura makes a great pass to Sinead who passes to Chiara whose shot ends up in the top corner of the goal. A tremendous goal from Chiara! Oadby are 4-1 up and the goal is followed by the highlight of the game, some superb cartwheel celebrations from Chiara. In an instant the Cosby forward breaks away and is 1v1 with V, however my money is on ‘the Cat’ (V) who makes an excellent save. Simi then makes a run from the half way line and shoots to score. Brilliant, 5-1 up and another hat trick for Simi (27 goals in 14 games). Next Laura makes a great pass to Chiara who shoots to score her 2nd goal of the day, inspiring stuff, 6-1 to Oadby. The Cosby keeper is kept busy by shots from Sinead and Chiara and eventually the Cosby keeper is beaten by a shot from Sinead to finish the game 7-1 to Oadby.

A great result considering the team hasn’t played in a while. Player of the day went to Laura who settled into the team as if she has been there all season. Well done to Cosby who played the game in the right spirit and never gave up.

FT 1 – 7

Player of the Day: Laura - a fantastic debut, with a great performance on the right wing.

Goals Scorers: Simi (3), Chiara (2), Sinead, Kiran

Blaby & Whetstone 0 Oadby Owls 2 – 19th January 2014 (League)

The Owls travelled to Blaby and Whetstone (B&W) for a league encounter on a bright but fresh day.  Manager Giles made some positional changes for the match, starting with Sinead in goal, Ellie and Simi in defence, Ruth, Stella and Mya in midfield and V up front.  Chiara and Kiran starting the match as subs.

Early pressure from the Owls earned them two corners in the first few minutes of the match ending in a shot by V saved by the B&W keeper.  The Owls maintained this pressure winning a third corner on 5 minutes.  A good low cross was swung in by Ellie and was met in the box by V who diverted the ball into the B&W goal for an early advantage.  This prompted a reaction from B&W, with a quick break leading to a shot just wide of Sinead’s goal, but the Owls where soon back in control of the ball with the midfield trio of Ruth, Stella and Mya playing some nice passes around and getting the ball forward to V to pressure the B&W defence.  It was a break from the back however that led to the Owls second goal with a great run from Simi being finished off with an equally impressive low shot into the back of the B&W goal.  With the advantage doubled, manager Giles brought on Kiran and Chiara in defence in place of Simi and V, with Ellie moving into midfield and Stella going up front.  The remainder of the first half saw the Owls in control of the game with a succession of corners and shots, particularly from Ellie, any B&W pressure being snuffed out by Kiran and Chiara in defence, however, the score line remained the same as the half time whistle blew.

HT 0 – 2 to the Owls.

Again changes were made for the start of the second half with Simi and V replacing Kiran and Chiara.  The half started in similar fashion to the first with early Owls pressure, a through ball from Ruth finding Stella for a chance but the B&W goalie came quickly off her line and smothered the ball.  A few minutes later a break and shot from Mya saw the B&W goalie called in to action again to prevent the score line increasing.   However, as in the first half, B&W began to get more into the game with a number of breaks into the Owls half calling Simi and V into defensive duties.  From one such attack Simi turned defence into attack with a great run and shot just wide of the B&W goal.  A corner to the owls a few minutes later gave Ellie a chance to shoot, but again just wide.  Mid-way through the half Kiran and Chiara replaced Simi and V and immediately a through ball from Ellie found Stella whose shot was saved by the B&W keeper.  Good passing between Kiran, Stella and Ruth created a chance to shoot for Mya but her effort went the wrong side of the post and the Owls lead remained unchanged.  Ellie was controlling the midfield area and cut out a goal kick by B&W, driving back towards the goal only to see the goalie pull off another save from her shot.  The Owls began to look tired, with the heavy pitch taking its toll, which enabled B&W to get into the Owls half.  However, great defending by both Kiran and Chiara prevented any reply from B&W and it was the Owls who created the final chance of the match with Stella playing a pass through to Ruth to shoot, as had been the case throughout the game though the B&W goalie was there to make the save.

The final whistle saw a well-deserved win for the Owls and a player of the day award for Ellie who played a great game in defence and midfield and was very unlucky not to score.

FT 0 – 2

Player of the Day: Ellie - great in defence and midfield and unlucky not to score!

Goals Scorers: V, Simi

Asfordby Amateurs Clawson 0 Oadby Owls 5 – 15th December 2013 (League)

A bright and windy morning greeted the Owls for their away fixture against Asfordby Clawson. The line-up started with Sinead in goal, Stella & Ruth in defence, Ellie, V & Mya in midfield, and Simi up front.

Oadby got off to a great start with an early goal from Ellie from a whipped corner which the Asfordby goal keeper got a hand to, however the bend on the ball meant that it flew into the net. 

The Owls followed this up with some great passing moves between Stella, Ruth, Mya, Ellie, V & Kiran that allowed Simi to score two great goals and meant that Oadby finished the first half with a 3 goal lead. 

At half time both teams paid tribute to the late Nelson Mandela by way of a one minute applause. A touching moment for a truly great man.

HT 0 – 3

Due to injury, Simi was taken off at half time; however the Owls continued to pass the ball and made good progress all over the pitch.

As the game went on Asfordby came back into it with some good passing moves of their own. However, excellent defending from both Ruth and Stella, and some resolute goal keeping from Sinead meant there was no way the Owls were going to concede a goal today!

The tide turned in Oadby’s favour as the game went on. The Owls used their much improved passing game to great effect, with a move involving most of the team that enabled Kiran to score an excellent goal by beating the keeper on the right hand side. Once Simi had recovered, she came back on and quickly went on a searching run to complete the win with a cool left footed finish.

All the girls played really well today and only an excellent performance from the Asfordby keeper prevented the Owls from scoring more. 

A great performance by all of the team, from defence to attack all the players put on a great show today and thoroughly deserved the win!

FT 0 – 5

Player of the Day: V - a great performance in midfield!

Goals Scorers: Ellie, Kiran, Simi (3)

Oadby Owls 3 Groby Junior Ladies FC 0 – 8th December 2013 (League)

A pleasant sense of anticipation filled the air for the Owls vs Groby game on Saturday. Both teams were prepared for a tough match, both with something to prove having tied their previous encounter. The game started with Vicki in goal, Mya and Ellie at the back, Kiran, Simi and Chiara in the midfield, Sinead up front and Stella and Ruth on the side.

The first ten minutes saw an amazing display of back and forth between the two teams. Running, tackling, passing, running, being tackled, chasing back. Back and forth, to and fro. Eventually, Groby won the first corner and the crowd quietened wondering whether Groby would take this chance to score the first goal...but the defence cleared it out easily.  

Later an errant ball in midfield hit Chiara in the chin but she shook it off and luckily the ball fell to Simi, who passed it to Sinead, who passed it back to Simi for a cracking left foot shot. The ball went wide, but from that moment on, something clicked with the Owls and the game became about passing. Kiran and Chiara roamed the midfield, feeding the balls to Simi and Sinead. Mya and Ellie completely owned the defensive line. Nothing was getting through them. Let's just say that Vicki had plenty of time to contemplate the meaning of life, which is as it should be.

Stella and Ruth came on to replace Mya and Kiran and continued the passing game exemplified by their team mates. A minute later, another one-two combination between Simi and Sinead saw a shot from Simi bounce off the post. The crowd cheered. Not a team to give in easily, Groby were fast on the counter attack. A ball to the right found Groby's best player charging down the wing… but Ruth and Stella worked well together and edged the attacker out to the side, with the ball going out for a harmless throw in. And with that, the ref blew the whistle for half time. The score was 0-0, but it felt like the Owls had the momentum.

HT 0-0

The start of the second half saw the Owls leap into action. Within the first minute, Simi stole the ball in midfield and ran diagonally left towards the corner flag, drawing no fewer than three defenders with her. A skilful drag back and a pass to her right found Sinead completely on her own. Groby tried to recover by running over, but Sinead had plenty of time to slide the ball home. 1-0 Owls. Sinead celebrated with her trademark knee slide at the half way line… and the rest of the team jumped for joy, smiles all around... and there might have been a cartwheel too!

A few minutes later, Sinead returned the favour with a great pass to Simi, right in front of the goal. With both the keeper and a defender closing in quickly, Simi lunged forward with a sliding shot, knocking the ball just to the right of the keeper and into the back of the net. 2-0 Cheers and celebrations…and another cartwheel!

All credit to the Groby girls, who did not give up. The game continued at a high pace and high quality, with lots of attacks and counter attacks on both sides. But the Owls were dominating and it wasn't long before a midfield pass found Sinead who threaded the ball perfectly between two defenders for a great pass to a waiting Simi who confidently scored her second.  3-0 Cheers all around… and this time a celebratory handspring from Chiara.

More great passing almost saw a fourth goal. Chiara ran down the left, passed square to Simi who faked two defenders and laid the ball off to Sinead. A fabulous shot from Sinead was thwarted by the cross bar… and the crowed oooh'd and ahhh'd their appreciation.

Near the end of the game, Groby mounted a final attack, a break away ball from deep in Groby defensive territory found their attacker on our left side headed straight for goal. Stella charged over from her position on the right, forcing the attacker to shoot early. Doing away with old habits, Vicki had come 5 yards off her line and shut down the angles... the shot came through... but Vicki was well placed to make a spectacular reaction-save with her right foot.

Game over. Owls won 3-0. Well done Vicki for a great save at the end and a well-deserved clean sheet. Well done Ellie, Mya and Stella for rock solid defending. Well done Chiara, Kiran and Ruth for excellent running, tackling and most importantly passing in midfield. Well done to Simi and Sinead for an excellent passing partnership between midfield and attack. The team-voted player of the match: Sinead.  

The question on everyone's mind now is: Will this passing phenomenon be continued next week? 

FT 3-0

Player of the Day: Sinead - for great work in midfield and attack!

Anstey Swifts 2 Oadby Owls 2 – 1st December 2013 (League)

It was crisp, cold winters morning in Anstey, with the sun shining it was a great morning for playing football. 

Oadby Owls started the game with Victoria in goal, Stella at right back, Ruth at left back, Ellie at left midfield, Mya at right midfield, Simeran in centre midfield and Kiran as the striker.

The Owls were kicking uphill and looking into the sun on a very heavy pitch but started much the better team by creating a couple of decent chances but were unable to convert, this was mainly due to the ball getting stuck in the pitch.

Anstey gained confidence and started to attack but Stella and Ruth stood their ground and came up with some quality defending.

The midfield were sticking to their principles and were passing the ball and moving further up the pitch with some quality moves. 

The first goal came from a break involving Simeran and Kiran who charged up the pitch with great pace, the pass from Simeran was perfect for Kiran to strike into the back of the net.  Great energy was shown by Ellie who covered every corner of the pitch. Mya was revelling in the midfield role and came close a couple of times and also linked up well with the impressive Simeran.

Sinead replaced Simeran half way through the first half and kept up the standards with some lung bursting runs from defence to attack. 

Anstey were kept at bay in the first half by Victoria with the help of her defenders.

HT 0-1

The second half started well for Oadby and forced a couple of corners but Anstey had plenty of fight in them and were putting pressure on Oadby. From one of Anstey’s attacks Oadby passed the ball out and created a chance for Mya who took it with a good strike with her right foot which hit the inside of the post and went in. Oadby were two nil up and looking good value for their lead.

The best move of the match involved, Ellie, Kiran, Mya and Sinead. The passing was straight from the training ground which lead to a strong shot from Sinead which the keeper knew nothing about, but fortunately for her the ball hit her and the chance was gone.

Anstey started to put pressure on Oadby and a goal was conceded, this gave Anstey confidence and a second goal came from a goal mouth scramble.

The final score of two all was a little harsh on Oadby as they created enough chances and on another day they could have scored a hat full of goals. 

Overall the match was an exciting and enthralling one to watch. The game was played in an excellent spirit, always nice to see both teams walking with a smile on their faces and shaking each other’s hands!

FT 2-2

Player of the Day: Mya - for some great work on the flanks and for her goal!

On a cold and frosty morning the Oadby Owls played at Coombe Park against Anstey Swifts Ladies. The Owls started well with Simeran scoring two minutes into the first half. This spurred the Owls onto having many strong shots on goal from both Simeran and Kiran.  Anstey fought back with two good shots on goal of their own. Anstey pushed forward once again and the Owls battled with Anstey in the box with strong defence from Stella, Mya and help from Ruth, but Anstey were too strong and eventually found the back of the net.  

Owls never gave up and pushed the ball up into the Anstey half with some fantastic passing from Chiara, Ruth, Kiran and Simeran resulting in the Owls second and third goals from Simeran.  Anstey once again fought back with a fantastic shot on goal but Victoria saved it, pushing the ball over the crossbar. Anstey tried again but were unable to score past Victoria.  Owls attacked again with Simeran battling the Anstey defence and finding the net again.

Oadby Owls 1 Leicester City Ladies 3 – 17th November 2013 (County Cup)

A still, cool, and overcast morning (perfect football weather) greeted the Owls for their County Cup Semi-Final Clash against Leicester City Ladies at Coombe Park. 

The line-up started with Victoria in goal, Stella, Kiran and Ellie in Defence, Chiara, Simeran and Sinead in midfield and Mya and Ruth on the bench.

Oadby got off to a hesitant start, with Leicester winning an early corner which was defended well, with a great early save from Victoria. This was followed up 2 minutes later with a goal from Leicester’s no. 10. Leicester kept the pressure on, hitting the side netting 3 minutes later, and 2 minutes after this forcing another excellent save from Victoria, who just nudged it over the bar. Still cautious the Owls battled on, with some bright flourishes from Simeran and Kiran pushing forward, with great support from Ellie and Stella in defence and Chiara and Sinead in midfield. But Leicester forced yet another corner and no. 10 took her chance once again finding the net putting Leicester two ahead.

At this point Oadby found their rhythm, pushing forward right into Leicester’s penalty area with Simeran forcing a great save. Just after the 20 minute mark, Ruth came on for Kiran, and the fresh legs helped another push forward, and Simeran found the net a minute later.

HT 1-2

After the break Mya and Kiran replaced Stella and Ellie, and with fresh legs the Owls kept up the pressure on Leicester with two successive corners, the second forcing a great save. Simeran shot once again but this time wide. Leicester seized the opportunity to get back into the game with 5 minutes of pressure on the Owls, but with a solid midfield, including a very energetic Chiara and 4 excellent saves from Victoria, they didn’t manage to find the net. 

The Owls then took the game back into Leicester’s half but with solid defending and Leicester’s fresher legs, the Owls didn’t manage to find the back of the net, and once again Leicester returned up the field to win a corner and their no. 2 made it 3-1. 

Just 2 minutes from time, after an excellent game, Sinead took a heavy fall and left the pitch with a hurt shoulder. Ellie and Stella came back on for Mya and Sinead and managed to hold the fort until full time.

FT 1-3

Player of the Day: Chiara - for great tackling and work rate throughout the game

Goals Scorers: Simeran

Oadby & Wigston 1 Oadby Owls 6 – 3rd November 2013 (League)

A cool, bright but windy morning greeted the Owls for their fixture against Oadby & Wigston. The line-up started with Victoria in goal, Ellie & Ruth in defence, Simeran, Sinead & Stella in midfield and Chiara up front.

Oadby got off to a great start with a goal from Chiara in the first minute after some good pressure from the Owls team. The Owls followed this up with some great passing from Ruth, Stella and Sinead, with Sinead firing a great cross over to Simi who narrowly missed with a great shot on goal.

As the game went on Oadby and Wigston came back into it with some good passing moves of their own. However, it was equally matched by the Owls passing game, which, after 16 mins, paid off when passes between Ruth, Stella & Simeran resulted in a great goal by Sinead. This sparked a good attacking move from Oadby & Wigston, which forced a great save by Vic. Oadby & Wigston weren’t to be denied 2 minutes later when they scored a good goal after some good passing throughout their team.

This made the Owls up their game and Simi soon scored a good breakaway goal with help from Chiara & Sinead.

HT – 1 – 3

After the break, Kiran and Mya replaced Chiara and Ruth, and a change of formation, with Stella going into defence with Mya and Ellie moving into Midfield with Simi & Sinead, with Kiran acting as striker.

Another promising start from the Owls rewarded them with an early corner, which Simi took and Sinead finished after the ball pinged around the goalmouth, a just reward for some good follow up work. From then on the Owls really got into gear with numerous corners won due to some excellent work throughout the team, all of them were fizzed into the box by Ellie & Simi. Oadby & Wigston continued to press forward with their passing game; however the Owls defensive duo of Mya & Stella did really well to break up all Oadby & Wigston’s efforts.

Continued pressure from the Owls paid off as the game moved into the last quarter, with lots of shots on goal hitting the posts and numerous corners. The constant pressure eventually paid off when Simi angled in a great corner, which went straight through the Oadby & Wigston defence to Sinead, who fired the ball into the net.

The game was rounded off with a brilliant breakaway move by the Owls following an Oadby & Wigston corner. The ball was cleared by Ellie, who passed the ball to Simi, who ran the length off the pitch to put in a fine cross to Sinead, who ran onto the ball at full speed and put in a brilliant finish to claim the final goal of the game.

A brilliant performance by all of the team, from defence to attack all the players put on a great show today and thoroughly deserved the win!

FT 1 – 6

An unusual line up but playing players in different positions helps them appreciate all aspects of football.

Oadby starting strongly with good passing plays between their defence and midfield especially Ellie who orchestrated this from the back. The ball bounced around the Cosby box with Mya shooting from 6 yards out, the ball then deflected back to her and she then shoots again to SCORE her first goal of the season, well done Mya! 1-0 to the owls after 5 minutes, looking good. After 5 minutes Oadby score again with Kiran breaking down the right who in turn passes to Ruth who finds Sinead who shoots to make it 2-0 to the Owls. Cosby break down our right and their no. 12 shoots but Vicky saves confidently. Again Oadby fly down the right hand side this time Sinead's shot is saved for an Oadby corner. Cosby’s no. 2 has a shot saved by Vicky who looks unbeatable in goal today. Midway through the first half Cosby are growing in confidence with counter attacking tactics resulting from our corners, Oadby need to tighten up at the back leaving Stella as the lone defender. Sinead runs through on goal but her shot is saved by a busy Cosby goalkeeper and Mya's double efforts are saved by Cosby which draws the half to an end.

Oadby Owls 6 – 0 Blaby & Whetstone – 29th September 2013 (League)

Blue skies and sunshine welcomed the Oadby Owls to their home game against Blaby and Whetstone early on Sunday morning, September 29.  Families and friends filled the sidelines, holding cups of tea and warm jackets to ward off the infamous Oadby breeze.

As the captain, Stella, led her team onto the field, a sense of excitement and anticipation filled the air. How would they do today? Would they win their tackles? Would they make good passes? Only time would tell!

Today’s team consisted of Victoria in goal, Stella and Mya in defence, Simi, Ellie, Sinead, Kiran and newcomer Chiara in midfield and attack.

Shouts of encouragement from the crowd filled the air as the referee blew the whistle to start the game and the Owls jumped into action. Within the first minute, Sinead had stolen the ball and passed to Simi. Simi dribbled around two players and took the first shot….just narrowly missing the goal…so close!

For the next ten minutes, Blaby and Whetstone tried really hard, but couldn't get the ball out of their own half. The Owls pressured with great tackling, dribbling, passing and shooting. Finally, the first goal came when a fabulous corner from Ellie found Chiara’s feet. Chiara shot with her left foot and found the bottom right corner of the goal. Goal! The Owls jumped for joy and the crowd cheered!  High fives and hugs all around!

The goal gave the Owls extra confidence and it wasn't long before Simi scored her first with a great shot that went in off the post. Goal! Everyone cheered again for the Owls.

Blaby and Whetstone made a few attempts on goal… but great defending by Mya and Stella and two solid saves from Victoria kept Blaby and Whetstone from scoring. The Owls midfield also did really well, with Kiran and Ellie making some important tackles and laying off some great passes.  Great teamwork!

Excellent perseverance from Sinead – charging through three defenders and following up on the keeper who was not able to put two hands on the ball, resulted in her scoring a simple tap in to get goal number 3. All the Owls were having fun now!

Blaby and Whetstone showed impressive spirit as they continued to work hard to defend and create chances…. but the Owls were too good. Three more Owl goals, one each for Chiara, Sinead and Simi sealed Blaby and Whetstone’s fate. The final score: 6-0 A great performance by all the Owls, with Player of the Day going to newcomer Chiara. Well done to everyone!

Leicester City Ladies Juniors FC 5 Oadby Owls 0 – 22nd September 2013 (League)

It was a lovely Indian summer’s day at Babington Community College where Oadby Owls were playing the Leicester Ladies.

The Leicester Ladies were a strong and physical outfit which were well organised and looked like they were used to playing with each other.

Leicester ladies started well with their right winger causing us a lot concern but Ruth and Stella in defence standing firm and staying disciplined.  They managed to get a number of strikes on goal but Victoria was up to the challenge with a number of excellent saves.

Oadby Owls composed themselves and weathered the storm and played some good football themselves with a good passing move involving Kiran who passed to Mya, who in turn put through Sinead who dribbled the ball past a couple of defenders before the ball broke to Simeran who managed to get off a good strike on goal, unfortunately it went just the wrong side of the upright.

Leicester Ladies then broke down the right and crossed the ball into the penalty box where everyone missed the ball, but the referee blew the whistle to both sides amazement. Unfortunately, a penalty kick was awarded to Leicester Ladies for contact.  Fortunately, justice was done as Oadby Owls player of the match Victoria saved it.

At half time the score remained 0-0.

The second half started with Ruth by replaced by Ellie. Leicester Ladies managed to pepper the Owls goal with a number of shots but Victoria was in great from and pulled off a number of great saves. Leicester Ladies had started strong and went ahead from a corner kick. Soon after this it was 2 nil from a long goal kick that evaded the Owls defence. The heat and constant pressure started to tell as Leicester Ladies took control and made their physical presence pay dividends by scoring two more quick goals. The Owls kept fighting, however it was an uphill battle and just before the final whistle Leicester Ladies scored one more.

Oadby Owls showed great fight and effort against a very good team but as usual the Owls played with a smile.

Groby Junior Ladies FC 1 Oadby Owls 1 - 1st September 2013 (League)

A bright and sunny day greeted the under 11 girls for their first ever fixture against the infamous Groby Juniors.

The game started with some excellent passing football between Ruth, Simeran, Ellie and Kiran with Oadby dominating possession in the early stages. This was backed up by some surging runs by Simeran & Kiran to threaten the Groby defence, however as game went on Groby came back into it with some good possession of their own. Groby followed this with a strong shot on goal that brought a fantastic save from Sinead to stop a certain goal. Eventually the good work from Groby paid off with a good goal late in the first half to put them in front. This was followed by some determined work by all the Oadby team to enable Simeran to get possession and produce a good run down the left side at the Groby defence, which led to a free kick. Simeran took resulting free kick which flew over the defenders and into the net to bring Oadby level. This was followed up with Victoria blasting the ball forward from just in front of the halfway line which unfortunately bounced just in front of the keeper, who was able to make the save. A great first half for both teams, who put in 100% effort throughout.

HT 1-1

The second half started in a similar way with both teams really going for it. Again, Ruth, Simeran, Ellie & Kiran put together some slick passing to put Oadby on the front foot. However, once again Groby came back into it with some good football of their own. There was lots of excellent defensive work from Stella & Victoria to get possession and enable the front four to attack the Groby goal. Groby broke forward late in the game which unfortunately led to a penalty for accidental hand ball. The resulting penalty was struck hard, however Sinead produced and excellent save to prevent an inevitable goal.

It was end to end stuff for most of the second half with both sides running themselves into the ground to earn a well-deserved draw.

An excellent first game for all the girls. Brilliant defending from Stella & Victoria, some great passing football from Ruth, Simeran, Ellie & Kiran, and some fantastic goal keeping from Sinead, who all worked really hard for the point.

FT 1-1

Player of the Day: Sinead - for some fantastic goalkeeping
